in yemen-- called al qaeda in the arabian peninsula-- we knew that they sought to strike the united states and that they were recruiting operatives to do so, the intelligence community did not aggressively follow up on and prioritize particular streams of intelligence related to a possible attack against the homeland. second, this contributed to a larger failure of analysis, a failure to connect the dots of intelligence that existed across our intelligence community. third, this in turn fed into shortcomings in the watch- listing system, which resulted in this person not being placed on the no-fly list, thereby allowing him to board that plane in amsterdam for detroit. in sum, the u.s. government had the information scattered throughout the system to potentially uncover this plot and disrupt the attack. rather than a failure to collect or share intelligence, this was a failure to connect and understand the intelligence that we already had. >> holman: as the president spoke, officials released declassified results of the investigation so far. among the new revelations: the 23-year-old niger
